Crispy Baked Chicken

Our family love El Pollo Loco Chicken so I challenged my self to make the homemade version with organic chicken. A few weeks ago I shared some of this chicken with my neighbor and she said her picky eater son like it a lot. Yayyyy

First thing first:
Season the chicken with plenty of salt and pepper. I also add dashes of Old Bay Seasoning
then brown chicken on skin side for about 5 minutes (this can get pretty messy with the oil splatting all over so you may want to do it outside)

 pineapple cookies recipe
I grew up eating this cookies. Every time we go back to Indonesia we always brought some boxes but they only last for a few weeks. So I decided to make it myself. After many not so successful attempts, I ended up with this recipe which won my hubby and kids' approval. Mission accomplished!

I adapted the recipe using ingredients easy to find in the U.S.

Stir Fry Green Mustard a.k.a Gai Choy or Jie Cai

 Stir Fry Green Mustard
Gai Choy or Jie Cai tastes quite bitter no wonder it is also called green mustard. Growing up in a tropical country with mosquitoes everywhere; my mom used to tell me if I eat this veggies I won't be bitten by mosquitoes because my blood would be bitter and mosquitoes won't like it.
I don't think it's true but it worked to get me to eat this.

I was very happy when I found the organic one at our local farmer market so I called mom and asked for the recipe.

The ingredients:
